They’re trying to change history—don’t let them. In the chaotic atmosphere of 2020, the Internet Archive is a crucial resource in the fight against misinformation, and we need your help. Right now we’re preserving history as it unfolds, even as it’s unfolding in ways we’ve never seen before. We’re hard at work preserving the record of what’s being said, who’s saying it, and when, creating a verifiable record of rapidly changing situations. We rely on the generosity of individuals in order to do this critical work.
Right now, we have a 2-to-1 Matching Gift Campaign, tripling the impact of every donation. If you find our public record useful, please chip in.
